About a vintage Stanley block plane that I got at a bunch-of-tools sale: Not sure the model number, it has some similarities to my model 220 and some similarities to my "sweet heart" plane. Having these two, and at least one other, and I just recently sold a surplus plane, I don't really need this one either and it might be available.

All parts are present and functional. Body is 6-1/4" long and blade is 1-5/8" wide. It looks like some idiot took a hammer and hit it on the upper side, so one of the sides has two big cracks and is bulged-in. The cracks are in the upper side "cheek" and do not extend to the blade slot. The bed is sound. The broken piece is present and still attached by about 10% of the material that should be attaching it, in other words, a 90% break and as a doctor might say, a displaced fracture. Plane is still usable in this condition. I could take a vise or c-clamp (or maybe another hammer) and try to get this piece back into position. Or this might cause it to break-off completely. I could (after forcing it back into position) get the cracks brazed. But since I do not need another block plane (or another project) what I would really like to do is sell it to you. Works as-is, or you can repair it yourself, especially if you are adept at brazing (welding?) cast iron.

So, what do you think I should do? Use it as-is, or try to repair it? Or who wants it for $10 ? Your advice or offers are welcome.

If the plane has a wooden knob I'd be interested in a trade maybe. My favorite go to is a 220 but the knob is gone.

Sorry, Ken, this one has a brass front knob. But it also has an adjustable mouth with a cam under the knob that works real sweet. Maybe I shouldn't sell it so cheap.

John,

Good suggestion on the fb plane page. I tooled around on there this morning. It's like an owwm group but specifically just for planes and easier access.

Somewhere along the line I picked up a Keen Kutter K-78 that I decided to fix. I had no idea what I had until I checked with the group. They suggested where to get the parts too.

I looked it up on the site that Steve said, Patrick Leach Blood and Gore (there was some other name on it but I found it by google and the index on another page somehow) and it is a #9 1/2, post-1894, will all the bells and whistles. And that broken piece that I thought was 90% cracked is actually 99% cracked and wiggling like a loose tooth, so I will probably get it brazed and keep it. Thanks for your interests.
